The History Speech by Mark Sweet

It is 1960s provincial New Zealand, and a set of upper middle-class families enjoy the good life together. But just under the surface of the conventionality, there are undercurrents.

Adolescent Callum Gow’s father is a bully, his mother is having an affair, and there are secrets about abuse, suicide and the past. In amongst this, Callum is trying to understand his growing identity and sexuality.

His only refuge is his grandfather, but this is in danger as Callum’s father has grandfather wrongfully committed as he won’t agree to a merger of the family business.

Callum has to resolve his internal conflicts about who he is and resist social conformity to rescue his grandfather, get himself and his mother away from his father’s control and tell the truth about the past.
